No links post this Saturday. Nor next Saturday, probably. I leave tomorrow for my East Coast adventure, driving QGD1 to Boston for college and visiting knitblogger friends on the way home.
Younger Son’s original plan was to have me drop him off somewhere in the St Louis area; he would bike to a location in the totality, camp there, observe the eclipse, then bike back north to Minneapolis. His plans were very fluid, though; what he eventually decided was to accompany me to Makanda and Ironton and have me drop him off somewhere north of there. I was very happy to have him with me as a navigator in the last few miles of the trip, as we drove deeper in the *wilderness* that is extreme southern IL.
* Careful examination of the photos revealed that this one is a subsequent stop. As my husband is fond of saying, “Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.”
